Star Trek wetsuits! (Important tip: Don't buy the red one)



Startrek wetsuitSpace is the final frontier. Not diving the North Wall off Grand Cayman, right? Try telling that to Trekkies (or Trekkers, take your pick) who now can buy Star Trek Wetsuits!

The official website is selling these outfits, which come in blue (for science officers), gold (for Kirk basically) and red (for security/engineering personnel who are likely to disappear from the episode in tragic fashion before the opening credits even roll.)

"These wetsuits are not novel gimmicks, they are the real deal, made using the highest quality materials and expert craftsmanship," the website insists. "Each individual wetsuit is custom made and tailored to your exact measurements for a perfect fit and unmatched performance. This is the ultimate in warmth and exposure protection when exploring strange new worlds!"

I hope the manufacturer has a LOT of neoprene to make these custom outfits. I'm not trying to cross the Neutral Zone or anything, but Trekkies have a bad rep for empathizing more with the whale from Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home than the actual crew of good ole NCC-1701.

If you wish to live long and prosper, here's all you need to know. Don't pick the red outfit unless your name is Scotty or Uhura. And be ready to cough up $460 to go where no nerd has gone before.
